Q For Quiet
Loud or sudden noise may disturb your child’s sleep or attempts to settle to sleep. If you are in a noisy environment, using white noise to drown out the outside noise, will help to settle your baby. Once in deep sleep, your child is likely to be able to sleep through almost anything but in lighter sleep or the onset of sleep, he might be unsettled by the slightest sound.
R For Routine
Babies who have consistent #BedtimeRoutine develop better sleep habits. Every evening, follow the same sequence of activities such as giving your baby a bath, dressing them up in pyjamas, and then putting them on the crib / bed. 🛏💤
S For Swaddle
Swaddling means snuggly wrapping your baby in a cozy cloth. This helps your baby from getting disturbed by their own startle reflex. One of the other reasons it works is that even in the womb the baby is similarly packed. 👶🏻
T For Telling a Story

Studies have also shown that it enhances creativity and boosts oral development It can also be integrated into your baby’s #BedtimeRoutine and also a great habit to carry throughout #childhood. 📚 👶🏻
U For Understanding Cues
Babies try to communicate with parents giving cues for different things. They may cry when hungry, may have wet diapers or may be experiencing colic. Each time babies cry, they express a different crying behavior- their way of communicating.
V For Vibrations
Vibrations are repetitive motions set to a rhythm that help babies fall asleep quickly. They in fact remind the baby of all the gentle motions it experienced in the womb. With gentle rhythm of vibrations, fussy babies calm down faster and fall asleep sooner, giving you enough time to relax yourself.
W For White Noise
White noise soothes babies as it imitates the familiar sounds of the womb. White noise, just like white light, drowns out all other sounds that occur in the environment thereby creating a peaceful ambience for babies. White noise helps the babies to fall back asleep if they have sleep arousals.
